Ballot Result – Tuesday 15th December 2015

The union conducted a ballot under clause 6 of its constitution which says “Section 6: Dissolution The Union shall be dissolved if a majority of 80% of the members voting by secret ballot so determine. Any assets remaining after all liabilities have been settled shall be disposed of as the majority of members present and voting at a Conference of the Union specifically called for that purpose may decide.”

The result of the ballot was that (81.5%) voted in favour of closing the union.

The officers are now in the process of implementing this decision and as a consequence all services are now suspended.

No further subscriptions will be taken via Direct Debit, and will all members who pay their subscriptions via deduction from their wages please ensure that your employer is informed.
The union will be writing to the relevant NHS Trusts informing them of the members decision to close but previous experience has shown us they are slow to respond, so please try to ensure you also make them aware.

All existing Personal Injury claims will continue to be handled by the solicitors who have dealt with your claim to date but no new cases of any kind can be accepted.
Anyone who has a query about anything relating to the closure would you please contact us by email at info@apap.org.uk for the period up to Christmas we will be able to handle your queries through
